I Made a Flash Game

The little game above is something I came up with while spending a few days learning Flash. ActionScript turns out to not be as bad as I thought it would be, and FlashDevelop is a pretty nice working environment. I'm also using the FlashPunk game library.

To play:
  • Up Arrow to jump
  • Down Arrow to duck/slide
  • X to punch/kick
If you run into a shuriken, table, or enemy (without attacking first) you die. Note that you can slide under tables and you can kick in the air.

My reflexes aren't what they used to be - my current record is 73 seconds.

The framerate stutters here and there. I haven't been able to figure out why - I think it might just be impossible to get a rock-steady framerate with Flash, which kind of sucks.


  1. Much much harder than it should be ... should start easy and slowly progress harder.
    Nice though.

  2. Straight out of the gate, smash you in the mouth difficulty was what I was going for :-)

  3. maybe Z should be a jump key, as that is my natural jump key so whenever i go to jump i press z and not space.

  4. i meant to say U, not Space

  5. Having 'z' be an alternate jump key is a good idea - I'll add that to my Windows version.
